Certificate IV in Community Services

National ID: CHC42015 | State ID: AWL8

 

This qualification will further your skills in developing services and programs to meet your clients needs.

You'll learn about advanced communication, group work, how to design and deliver programs that enhance community participation and the legal and ethical responsibilities and requirements for working in community services. At this level you may have supervisory responsibilities.

As part of this qualification you will undertake a supervised work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned.

If you enjoy helping people and like working in a team then a career in community services could be for you. All of our Community Service qualifications have flexible training delivery modes and the option to study on the job.

Your Certificate IV in Community Services Work prepares you for roles such as:

  • Case Worker
  • Residential Care Worker
  • Community Worker in areas such as mental health, alcohol and other drugs or migrant services.

There is an ongoing skill shortage in this industry so employment prospects are high.

We recommend that students be over the age of 18 before enrolling into this course as the employment/placement outcomes are very limited for students under the age of 18.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
